This video is not from Amritsar India but Brazil and it is an old video dated 19th January 2020.
With the help of keyframes from this video, we made a reverse image search on Google. It led us to a Youtube Channel named RC Channel.
On this youtube channel, this video was updated with the following description “A truck collided with a helicopter from the SSP-AC (Acre Public Security Secretariat), this Saturday, in the state capital, Rio Branco, Brazil. According to initial information, no one was hurt by the accident. The accident happened with a motorized helicopter manufactured by Helibras in 2009, which belongs to the government of Acre.”
During our course of the investigation we, later on, made a google keyword search regarding this truck collision incident happened in Brazil we also found an article on Daily Mail describing the incident.
Thus in our investigation, we found out that the claims made regarding this video were found to be false and this video is an old video from Brazil and it does not have any connection with Amritsar.
